    Yes, custom rolled W2 (.125), but double the price of a regular thickness stock (.25") unfortunately. Saved myself a lot of time grinding and normalizing.

    Meeting Aldo was fun. If he comes to ECG, he can bring steel with him, if any of you guys need anything.

    BAHH, you should get it in 2 1/2" round bar like me, it's so much more versatile.

    Hehe, I wish. I would not have an excuse then to pass on LGs I see periodically for sale. Unfortunately, I can't have an open flame in my workshop (insurance and liability reasons), so for the time being, I have to select materials I can work with. Down the road, I will consider other options.

    You should do some WIP pics. I would keep a keen eye out for warpage...that's mighty thin steel you got there.

    Round Bar.....sheesh....

    It's going to be months (at best) before I have anything to show. Not very keen on WIP, as I find stopping and taking pictures disruptive.

    I can hang around your shop and drink beers while taking pictures if you find that a more elegant solution

    Sure. I have an arm chair in the shop and Internet, but you would have you wear a respirator.

    Marko, If you are going to try a hamon on 52100 you can save yourself some time and effort by not bothering, it dont work. You can get a temper line by heating and quenching only half the blade but it is not the wispy cloudy transition of a Japanese hamon.
